On CAPS, 97% of the 294 members who have rated Female Health believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star aufergy, succinctly summed up the Female Health bull case for our community:

- Debt free balance sheet
-Company has strong margins and produces healthy free cash flow. ...
-Very little (if any) competition. They have the only FDA approved [female condom product].

A company that has a nice moat in a niche that should continue to grow, a strong balance sheet, and only one analyst following it. All that for 16x trailing earnings? I'm in. Peter Lynch would be proud.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Female Health may not be your top choice.

    Yield Shark newsletter recommended it, the stock popped up, they raised the stop loss, the stock dropped and they were stopped out.

    Mauldin Economics was very impressed with the stock when they reco'd it.
